The Holocaust Education Committee offers a multitude of resources, including the Traveling Trunks and Speakers Bureau (outlined in this brochure), to assist in educating tolerance.
The Speakers Bureau consists of volunteers who are willing to tell their personal stories about the horrors of the Holocaust and the results of intolerance.
Most of our speakers are Holocaust survivors and children of survivors. For more information please contact the Holocaust Education Committee.
For more information contact Cheryl Dritz at 614.559.3226 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Age appropriate reading materials, simulated uniforms from a concentration camp, pictures that show family and school life before the Holocaust, and maps and time lines help educate students about the Holocaust.
The items in the Trunk are designed to offer your students an empathizing experience. A Trunk may be on loan to the teacher for one to two weeks at NO COST.
To reserve the trunks or schedule a speaker contact Cheryl Dritz at 614.559.3226 or email@example.com.

What happens when hate is left unchecked? Through artifacts, photographs, and video, including testimony from area Holocaust survivors, students examine the impact of racism and anti-Semitism leading to the Holocaust and the systematic murder of six million Jews. Emphasis is placed on social responsibility, how individuals can make a difference and the need for tolerance in today’s world.
Anti-Semitism in America
America strives to welcome all regardless of race, class, ethnicity or religion, and America has provided many opportunities for the Jewish people. But bigotry against Jews has often lurked below the surface or been expressed out loud at different times in U.S. history. Learn the forms this prejudice has taken and how Jews continue to fight against it.

“Welcome to the nation's first freestanding museum, dedicated to the memory of the Holocaust in its new, expanded home. Beyond exhibits from our former facility in
The popular and effective Introduction to the new Center is our TIME LINE. This circular exhibit room directly off the lobby tracks the history of the Jewish people against major events in world history over a period of over 4,000 years.
Ramps from the Heritage section lead visitors into the story of WORLD WAR II , beginning with The Rise of the Nazis. Here we are introduced to
The next section, called THE FINAL SOLUTION (In the context of the Nazi leaders' intention to annihilate the Jews of Europe) examines the process of deportation of Jews to concentration camps where they are either murdered on arrival or worked to death in subsequent months. Entering the Cattle Car exhibit, we witness the horrifying conditions forced upon the deportees. The visitor gets to feel the confinement of the crowded cattle car and watch a video of a survivor as he describes his journey and arrival at
Visitors next enter the POST-WAR WORLD section of the Center. After viewing another video program with
Finally, there is the HARRY AND WANDA ZEKELMAN INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE OF THE RIGHTEOUS where we honor the thousands of non-Jews who saved, or tried to save, at least one Jew, knowing that they were placing themselves in mortal danger. The stories of those persons' acts of bravery are as inspiring and uplifting as the stories of the Nazi-led murders and atrocities are horrifying and depressing. Such heroes and heroines and their families are, and always will be, honored in every Holocaust center worldwide. As it is said in the Talmud: "When someone saves a life, it is as if that person had saved the whole world."
We are also pleased to announce that we have formed a pioneering Corps of the Righteous made up of
A theatre and interactive terminals deal with choices one may face in life. An appropriate ending point for the tour - and also a good alternative starting point - is the MEMORIAL FLAME in the Center's lobby. This continuously-lit flame burns next to two walls - one detailing the numbers of Jews murdered by country during the Holocaust, and another listing the names of the concentration camps and massacre sites where so many of those murders took place.
The monumental accomplishment by Israeli artist Dubi Arie , "The Mission: Under the Wing of God and the Shadow of Amalek," is on exhibit daily in the HMC's auditorium. The process of creating this episodic painting spanned two decades. From the first to final brush stroke, the painting took seven years to complete. Any HMC volunteer or staff member will be happy to direct you to it. Room-size reproductions of "The Mission," suitable for framing, may be purchased in our Museum Shop. Please ask an associate there for details. More information on the artist
